Soul Food Sunday @ Deja Blue | Seaside - Monterey Peninsula

Melanie Wong | Jun 14, 202006:18 PM    

Deja Blue is a new jazz and blues club, bar and restaurant in Seaside. It opened in February . . . then the Covid-19 pandemic hit. I dropped in last weekend. One of the owners told me they'd been able to keep the doors open with curbside meal service.

On Sundays the menu switches to a soul food offering. Last Sunday's special was fried chicken. For $20, I got three big drumsticks and a thigh (I'd asked for dark meat only), choice of two sides and cornbread. I opted for the black-eyed peas stewed with smoky bits of meat and the collard greens. The fried chicken needed a bit more salt, but that was easy to remedy. This was more than enough for two tasty meals.

The interior has been fitted with acrylic panels to separate the booths. While waiting for my order, I was careful to remain standing, as anything that I might touch would need to be disinfected according to current protocols.

The menu is a work in progress. I have my eye on the wild shrimp and grits, and will definitely be back to try more. LIke the gumbo, as one of the owners is from New Orleans. And I'll need to get one of those frozen daiquiris.
